New this year are American sycamore, tag alder, sawtooth oak and ninebark.

The main addition to riparian planting will be streamco willow cuttings and wattles, which help restore damaged and eroding banks.

Also available are slow-release fertilizer tablets that will provide necessary nutrients for up to two years, and water gel, which helps to retain moisture around the roots, especially important during a dry spring and summer.

March 8 is the deadline to place an order and guarantee variety.

Orders will be available for pickup April 19 in Westport.

To get an order form or for more information, check the website essexcountyswcd.org or call 962-8225 weekdays; email essexswcd@westelcom.com, go to the link at www.co.essex.ny.us; or come to the office at the Cornell Cooperative Extension Center (second floor), 3 Sisco St., Westport.
